Elsewhere in Syria, he said the numbers of people stuck in besieged or other areas humanitarian workers can not easily access has shrunk dramatically since a year ago to just over two million people.

Wouter Schaap, the Syria director of CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty, said the figure 920,000 of people displaced "is shocking, and shows that the war in Syria is far from being over".

The U.N. regional humanitarian coordinator for Syria cited reports of a deadly air strike on Sunday that had killed 11 people and hit a pediatric hospital.

The UN regional humanitarian coordinator for Syria, Panos Moumtzis, warned today of the escalation of the armed conflict in Syria and the possibility that hundreds of thousands of people would have to seek refuge in Turkey.

"We can not see a military solution, it can not take place", he said. It brings the number of people internally displaced in the war-ravaged country to 6.2 million, while there are still some 5.6 million Syrian refugees in neighboring countries, according to United Nations figures.

The White Helmets say at least 16 more people were killed by Syrian government airstrikes over the weekend.

"We also worry that for the people of Idlib, there is no other Idlib to take them out to, really this is the last location", he said.

Macedonia Has Just Changed Its Name To End Dispute With Greece
The leaders of Macedonia and Greece reached an agreement on Tuesday to end a 27-year feud surrounding the Balkan country's name. Zaev said resolving the longstanding issue would open Macedonia's access to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the EU.


"The Secretary-General underscores the precarious plight of the estimated 2.3 million people in Idlib governorate, 60 per cent of whom are civilians displaced by the conflict from other areas, most recently from Eastern Ghouta", he added.

But Moumtzis said "our worry is that with the Idlib situation, we may not have seen the worst of the crisis in Syria".

"We are on high alert", he said.

Syrian forces later moved to liberate other militant-held areas in the provinces of Homs and Hama.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also confirmed the attack, saying, "The overnight attack on al-Foua and Kefraya was the fiercest in three years".

But Moumtzis voiced deep concern over the lack of funds for the massive aid operation, with only 26 percent of the $3.5 billion needed inside Syria this year materialising to date. Under the Astana agreement, Turkey is to gradually establish 12 observation points from Idlib's north to south to monitor and sustain the current ceasefire agreement for the de-escalation zones, deliver humanitarian aid and ensure the secure return of displaced people. "We are stretched to a maximum", he said.
